The Red Bahnik Trio Goes To Santander on Limited Edition LP
First reissue of The Red Bahnik's great piano trio album Goes To Santander , originally released in 1963 on the private Soulside label from Zurich/Switzerland with only a handful of copies known to exist. Carefully remastered for vinyl LP, this much sought after reissue comes with original cover artwork and liner notes.
Goes To Santander was the first and last recordings of unknown jazz pianist Red Bahnik, with John Treichler on bass and a young Mani Neumeier on drums, which includes unique versions of Les McCann's "Vacushna" and "Fish This Week," Horace Silver's "Sister Sadie," plus original material like the oriental-tinged "Fata Morgana Altamira" or the Latin tune "Santander."
The Red Bahnik Trio came into existence in February 1962. The three musicians however already knew each other before: Red and Mani have played together since 1960 in various combos and met John in a jam session during the 1961 Jazz Festival in Zurich. They found very much resemblance in their ideas and their feeling for the music and thus decided to form a Trio.
